Huntsman to warn of 'un-American' future in speech

Liberty State Park, New Jersey (CNN) - Not known for throwing out red meat to conservative audiences, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman is expected to warn voters the country is facing an "un-American" future in his campaign kick-off speech Tuesday.

According to excerpts released by his campaign Monday night, Huntsman will take aim at the sluggish economy and mounting national debt in his remarks.

"We are about to pass down to the next generation a country that is less powerful, less compassionate, less competitive and less confident than the one we got. This is totally unacceptable and totally un-American," Huntsman is expected to say in his speech.
